Liu, Volpe, and Galetta's Neuro-Ophthalmology: Diagnosis and Management, 3rd Edition remains unique in its complete, authoritative coverage of the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders affecting the eye. Bridging the gap between a handbook and an encyclopedic resource, it distills a vast amount of information into a single, concise, superbly illustrated volume. User-friendly and thoroughly up to date, this highly renowned reference is a one-stop resource for current information in this growing area.

  • Combines over 1,000 illustrations and cross references with tables, outlines, and flow-diagrams to provide you with everything you need to understand the underlying presentation, pathophysiology, neuroimaging, and diagnostic studies in neuro-ophthalmology, along with the ideal diagnostic, treatment, and ongoing management tools for all neuro-ophthalmic conditions.
  • Covers the neurological examination and the bedside neuro-ophthalmic evaluation of comatose patients that demonstrates how the examination can be used to confirm a diagnosis arrived at from the patient history.
  • Includes the expertise and knowledge of a small, hand-picked contributor team that ensure the latest advances are incorporated into each chapter.

"an excellent neuro-ophthalmology reference that will serve both trainees and seasoned practitioners well. It is easily readable and comprehensive without being overwhelming and cumbersome in detail"

"Overall, I can give this book a strong recommendation: it is easy to navigate, well-written by exceptional neuro-ophthalmologists, and comprehensive. It is an excellent foundation textbook providing middle ground between an encyclopaedic source and an atlas."

"The book and accompanying website are very useful to the intended audience. In this third edition, not only are chapters updated, developing trends are also added and outdated articles and texts removed."
